  1. This should be refrigerated and served cold, correct? I am making it for a potluck at work and wanted to make sure.
    Thanks!

  2. Made this tonight it turned out wonderful thank you for sharing. I did change the dressing just because I didn’t have Italian dressing. I used an olive oil dressing it worked great.

  3. We do this with bottled Asian sesame dressing and add crunchy rice noodles and lots of fresh spinach. Love your Italian version, which makes more sense with the tortellini- LOL! I Can’t wait to try your version – yum!

  4. This might be a dumb question but for the frozen spinach, you don’t cook it at all right? Just leave it out to thaw?
